Kitwe based FIFA referee Gladys Lengwe is delighted to have been nominated for the 2014 Zambian referee of the year award.
Lengwe, who won the same award in 2012 and 2013, is competing against Kapiri Mposhi referee Jani Sikazwe and Lusaka based Wellington Kaoma.
“Obviously, I am happy to be recognized in the country,” she said.
Last year, Lengwe officiated at the Youth Olympics in China and the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup.
“I am not worried whether or not I win the award,” she said.
Lengwe is the only female centre referee in the FAZ Super League.
